It’s a shame that residents in the Hermosa neighborhood of Chicago have a large park that is not being maintained by the city. Someone in the largely Latino populated neighborhood feels the only way to get the city clean and pay attention to the park is to have white people play in it.

A Reddit user posted the above photo they found during visit to the park. Clearly, someone realizes that if the park is gentrified then the city will take care of it.

“With the direction of gentrification towards that area, they’ll get their wish soon,” one person wrote in the comments section.

Kelvyn Park sits on 8.5 acres and includes a  field house, with a fitness center, auditorium, meeting rooms and a small kitchen. It also includes tennis courts, baseball and soccer fields. But is currently in disarray.

Someone find some white people fast. Just like Spike Lee said, it’s not until white people move into an area that a city wants to make the resources more viable.

Haha!  I remember the Lincoln Park neighborhood back in the 80s.  Straight up seedy.  Fast forward to 2014 and you have $2,000,000 single family homes and $600,000 condos.  Sad to say, but this guy has a point. He should be warned, once gentrification starts, the poor better understand they need to start packing since it will only be a matter of time before they can no longer afford to live there. Unhappy

 
Just ask the folks living in Williamsburg Brooklyn...

That's not even what this is about.

We all pay taxes to the Government so we all deserve Government services

Exactly. This isn't city vs. suburb. The park district is clearly funneling money to the clear parts of the city and neglecting the brown parts. Probably because they've gotten away with it so long and people have been scared to speak out.

I'm sure city officials feel obligated to keeping up the White parts of the town because it's usually the White pockets that fund their campaigns

Black people can't appeal to the moral (or legal) senses of anybody White or anyone who gets paid by the Government in an effort to make serious long-term changes for our community

We must power ourselves economically, first, and then buy our interests like everyone else does

I'm tired of complaining about how unfair this system is
If you can't beat it... f*cking join it

We need to seriously stop voting for corrupt black Politicians . Look at Detroit for example . The mayor and his gang stole every dime for parks in black neighborhoods . White folks like a nice park , but they will steal the soccer /baseball funds from children.

I will read the article after dinner . I say let the white folks donate to fix the parks with a iron clad contract . You can't built nothing on the land after the fact . My husband and a few friends cut grass for free in disadvantage black children parks . I have a savings plan to purchase new swings . I may reach my goal soon .
